Just returned from 3 nights stay and this is a great base from which to explore the East Neuk of Fife On the plus side reception and dining room staff were excellent. Dinner on first night was pretty dire (substitute chef, apparently). Second and third night dinners were an improvement but couldn't rate it as v good. Had to ask... More

Visited the Craws Nest Anstruther for evening dinner in a party of 4 yesterday evening , and had a delightful meal , however we had to sit in the bar as the restaurant was full due to a coach party ,no problem as the service was great . Will visit again that's for sure .

A short self-drive break was most relaxing and enjoyable. Setting is excellent with sea views. Our room (30) was at the top of the hotel and was a bit of a struggle with luggage but very helpful staff made light work of it for us. Food very good . Excellent center for touring East Neuk of Fife.

Very enjoyable two nights. Meals excellent. The family room was en-suite and very clean. The meals were excellent and had a good choice of wines by the glass. Some foreign guests arrived on the second night and were a bit boisterous, jumping onto the flat roof outside our rooms. When we brought this to the attention of the staff, it... More

Easy and very scenic journey by bus from St Andrews right to the door of the Hotel. Lovely welcome and rooms in Annexe comfortable and spotlessly clean, one with beautiful sea view. Staff in restaurant , both in the evening and at breakfast, were friendly and efficient and the food was fantastic. The garden was in full bloom and such... More

Room was average size but very stuffy and tired looking. Bathroom suite was yellow (haven't seen one in this colour for about 20 years), black/brown tiling and no fan. Room was just very depressing and the smell of food from the restaurant was overpowering. Bar area was equally depressing although the dining room was fine and breakfast was nice. Okay... More

We chose the Craw's Nest in Anstruther to enable us to explore all the wee harbours around the East Neuk of Fife. This hotel was excellent for our needs – by that I mean we are usually out all day until we return for a drink and dinner. So although the size of our room in the hotel annex was... More

A very helpful lady was on reception when we checked in but our optimism was soon dashed when we saw our room - it was pokey, had unattractive and passé décor (which continues throughout the hotel) and outdated fittings in the equally pokey en-suite bathroom. There were threadbare carpets on the staircase and a depressingly jaded 1970s feel to the... More
